After conducting a large clearance operation, the ANDSF continues to secure the Nawah district in Helmand province.
Nearly two and half decades ago, Russian forces were fighting Mujahideen and each hid landmines to destroy each other. Many of those mines are still there, and the Taliban have planted more mines since then, leaving a risk to innocent lives all over Afghanistan. Today, these mines are being cleared with the help of international support.
The Afghan Air Force, comprised of many brave personnel in various roles, from engineers to pilots, is supporting our ground troops to bring security and stability to our country. This professional team has taken the training they receive from coalition forces and applied it in maintaining their own equipment and continuing to build a self-sufficient force.
